Vishaal Virani

Co-founder & Strategy Director




Vishaal graduated from UCL Medical School in 2011 and completed his Foundation Training at William Harvey Hospital and King’s College Hospital in London. He then worked  at a startup healthcare consultancy called Mansfield Advisors, analysing business plans for medical technology companies and private hospital groups. Vishaal now works as a management consultant at OC&C Strategy Consultants, where he specialises in retail, consumer goods and media.Vishaal plans to use the skills he has developed through medicine and consulting to start his own consumer-facing healthcare company. Coming from a family of entrepreneurs he has always been interested in business. He recalls a patient consultation during his medical training, where he found himself more interested in diagnosing problems with his patient’s new startup than in their symptoms, and at that point he knew it was time to jump ship into the business world!

His view on starting a healthcare business after training as a doctor: “It’s easier to teach a doctor business than to teach a businessman medicine. Doctors posses a unique skill set to make invaluable contributions to the healthcare startup world, so what are you waiting for?”
